    Surprised there's no big thread about this?

    Anyway. Is this original? The hands seem wrong?

    I might post other watches in this thread as well. I want an original vintage Omega but it's hard for me.. I got burned with my last one.

    Here's the watch I'm wondering about now

    Thanks.

    Is it ok with a thread like this or is there another one? A thread where you can post pictures and just ask if it's original or not.

    I'm on a hunt for an original Omega but there's so many out there that are not original and I'm new to this so it's hard to know.

    Normally, each watch should be in its own thread to avoid mixed up and confusion.

    See if someone can look at this before the auction ends in 1h.

    Original? I guess not because it's around 200$ with no bids.

    Or you can just buy a nice watch posted in the sales forum. Collectors stalk those sub forums and will make innacuracies or undisclosed redials known if a seller is being shady.

    I can't afford that. Mostly expensive there, going to look there in the future when I have money. Just want a replacement for the one I have, trying to sell that one.

    Have written it before but right now I just want an Omega as an inspiration (don't know the right word) because I'm fighting illness. And it would be a plus if I bought in the country where I live.

    But will definitely maybe buy from there when I want a nicer watch.

    Save a little more and buy a good one...don't gamble is my opinion. Peace of mind is everything

    Mixed feelings about this thread. Do we need to give opinions on 5 watches a day so OP can make a living or so?
